Remember how I said life had become insane?

I had no idea how crazy it could get. None. NO ONE COULD HAVE IMAGINED. 

Harvest hit at the EXACT SAME MOMENT that my job decided to explode with activities and deadlines and field trips and permission slips and awards and number crunching and did-I-mention-the-oh-so-many MEETINGS?

Well, in all this craziness, we had two Madison "Bison Babe" get-togethers, and this voicemail received after one of them will make you realize how awesome Sweet Philip is...

Sitting in my office, enjoying the roses Philip sent me on the last day of school and wearing the sweet Conan shirt Karla Meador gave me (BECAUSE SHE IS THE BEST!!) with a fresh delivery of Edmundo & Emilia's world-famous tamales to take home...

...grinning from ear to ear.

Life, as we know it, has come to a grinding halt.

Life has been pretty insane lately...even more than AISD librarians prepare for our new roles/campuses. It's been one deadline, MEETING, crisis, budget problem, MEETING, celebration, urgent email, bus request, phone call, MEETING, class, equipment problem, project, and MEETING after another these days...with all indications that it's going to get worse instead of better as we finish out May.

And then on top of that, HARVEST started today for Philip. We know we won't see each other much for the next month...which is a bummer, but on the other hand, maybe it's LUCKY that our calendars get crazy at the same time. We would feel guilty ignoring the other person if just one of us were constantly engaged in business...but since we're both covered up, we're just grateful to have the time to work on our individual projects!

Here's what Madison did on Friday:

And what we did on Saturday:

This Wednesday is the Lone Star luncheon, generously underwritten by Senter, Realtors and CBS Insurance. (After that, Kirsten and I may be able to catch our breath a little...before we begin packing up to leave Madison after all these years.) Gulp. Sniffle.

Oh, and poor Philip. Here's the first harvest cell phone video he sent me, probably the first of many over the next month!

Oh, and as crazy as life gets...I'll still try to keep Flickr updated...because I love it. This article confirms my Flickr addiction is healthy. (Oh, and while you're at the Wired site, you may as well enjoy THIS.)
